“Permission to Be Human: How to Create a Thriving People-First Culture, Starting with Yourself”

Research shows that people crave connection, belonging, and purpose at work, but sadly that's far from the norm for most organizations. And when our world gets turned completely upside-down we need permission to be human even more. So instead of breading an environment of disconnected, disengaged, zoomed-out zombies, gain the confidence and tools to create a thriving people-first environment starting with yourself, then your team, and organization at large. MaryBeth will guide you through a practical and replicable process to slow down, reflect and realign to what matters most in your human experience.
